  • duane pitre – origin – root strata

    $18.00 Add to cart

    the entirety of Origin’s musical material is comprised of the vibrating strings of Pitre’s ensemble of bowed “harmonic-guitars,” which are unconventionally strung electric guitars (utilizing multi-unisons) tuned to intervals corresponding with the Harmonic Series, a.k.a. Just Intonation. No effects processing (pre or post) was used in this recording. All effect-like qualities result from the multi-unison strings (phasing), sympathetic vibrations, combination/difference tones (of the chosen just tuning), and natural acoustic phenomena as such.

    Edition of 300 LPs in full color jackets with coupon for DRM-free MP3s of the entire album.


  • vestas – forever falling toward the sky – root strata

    $14.00 Add to cart

    ” Forever Falling Toward the Sky is the first ever release by Bay Area based Vestals, AKA Lisa McGee. A taught set of haunting electric ballads, these five tracks weave together a number of layered guitars and vocals into a smokey tapestry of blown electricity. Rather than the ephemeral drones McGee has been involved with recently, most notably the group-mind ensemble Portraits & the duo Higuma, Vestals retains the clarity of song, with these hypnotic gyms having been slowly carved out over a year of recording & mixing. Filled out with drum machine & bass, Forever Falling Toward the Sky really does have the feeling of a group completely jelled, hammering out feedback in a California basement, high on guitar worship & sunsets.” Edition of 300 copies, featuring guest appearances by Evan Caminiti (the Barn Owl dude!) and Trevor Montgomery (Tarantel).
